to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in the open and on the table. you know what, think about this. the president could have said, you know, i don't want to do that. i
to ed show. thanks for staying with us tonight. president obama wasn't the only one speaking out today. the mr. mitt romney held a conference call with his high-dollar donors. romney seemed to double down on his 47% comments. romney said the president won by following the old playbook and giving gifts to, quote, the african-american community, the hispanic community, and young people. the former candidate went on to say this. "with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. and then finally, obama care also made a difference for them because, as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parent's plan, and that was a big gift too to young people." for more, let's turn to john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine and author of the book "uprising." it doesn't sound like mitt romney has learned anything in the last week. >> the interesting thing is that back in october, when he was really getting a hard time
. joining us now is bill bergman, a senior strategist for a pro-obama super pac. he previously served as the deputy press secretary for this president and for national press secretary for mr. obama's campaign in 2008. mr. burton, congratulations. >> thank you very much. >> you had a big year. >> it was a good election. one other presidential clip that you could have shown would have been from "the american president," when andrew shepard says, "i am andrew shepard and i am the president." >> and not born in kenya. i think the president is saying, you know what, the birth certificate thing is not going the paradigm for the kinds of fights we have here. we're to the going to fight about whether the new black panther party stole the election in pennsylvania. we're not going to fight about this stuff that so animated the right. we're going to focus on, we're going to put that stuff aside. he's essentially challenging the republican party to have an adult debate. i see that dynamic at work, at large, and specifically on this susan rice issue. do you think that's happening? >> absolutely. i

. catherine, thanks so much. yesterday president obama testified his administration's handling of the consulate attack that killed four americans. take a listen to this exchange went president and ed henry. >> i wanted to ask about the families of these four americans killed. sean smith's father ray said he believes his son basically called 911 for help and didn't get it. and i know you said you grieve for these four americans. that it's being investigated. but the families have been waiting for two months. i would like to -- for you to address the families if you can. on 9/11 as commander in chief did you issue any orders to try to protect their lives? >> ed, you know, i'll address the families not through the press, i'll address the families directly as i already have. and we'll provide all the information that is available about what happened on that day. that's what the investigation is for. but as i said repeatedly, if people don't think that we did everything we can to make sure that we saved the lives of folks who i sent there and who were carrying out miss on behalf of

" >> greta: obamacare is now the law of the land. like it or not works we have it. a slight wrinkle. did the obama administration spend yuyour tax money not just on health services, but p.r. to convince that you should you love obamacare? a house committee wants to know. they subpoenaed hhs committee chair kathleen sebelius. we have a panel here to discuss it. rick, what does the hill want? >> the hill wants to know what kathleen sebelius was spenning mono, and whether there was money proanted for hhs publicity, directed to improve the standing of the obama health care law. if it was spent on those purposes, it wasn't really doing its job. the obamacare is not nearly as possible as the administration wanted. i would also say, look, it is the law of land. as a political matter, this is a very legitimate inquiry, but have you more and more republicans saying, it's time to move on. i don't see this as a fruitful area to go through the things that happened in the last term. it is the law
